Paris Airport Transportation Both CDG & ORLY

FF Miles necessitated splitting up family coming into Paris from Madrid on Fri 3/28. DH & DD1 arriving CDG 11:50am. DD2 & self arriving Orly 10:50am. We are staying on Ille St. Louis. Luggage each is small carryon rollerboard & backpack. Any thoughts on our best tranportation options into city?
Thanks!

CDG transport - tinyurl.com/mpjhn

ORY transport - tinyurl.com/yh97u4

"Best" from both with light luggage is probably RER B (suburban train) to St Michel-Notre Dame.

From CDG, you buy an RER ticket to Paris for 8,30€.
From ORY, it's a combined OrlyVal-RER ticket for 9,30€

From ORY you could also take the Orlybus to Denfert-Rochereau (6.10&euro and the RER B from there to St-Michel Notre-Dame (1.50&euro.

The RER B would get both parties to Saint Michel-Notre Dame (exit at the back of the station if coming from CDG and at the front of the station if coming from Orly -- this will bring you up the 3 escalators directly in front of Notre Dame). Upon exiting the RER, you are less than 500 meters from Ile Saint Louis -- just walk along the left side of Notre Dame and keep going across the pedestrian bridge.

One more question... how can I get to Terminal 2 in CDG? does RER line B3 leave me right there?

thanks!

The B3 line stops right in the middle of T2.

There are two RER stations at CDG. CDG 1 is next to Terminal 3 and close to Terminal 1. CDG 2 TGV is below Terminal 2.

Get off the RER at the CDG 1 station. Take the free CDGVAL driverless shuttle train to Terminal 1.
